I never knew that.

Anyway, I got pointed at this page
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_instant_messengers on the
Wikipedia yesterday which lists which IM clients support Rendezvous
(obviously it's non-exhaustive and has non-Jabber clients listed). However,
Trillian Pro appears to be the only Windows-based Jabber-capable client
which can do Rendezvous.
